Your Cloud. Your Data. Your Terms.

Tessell empowers enterprises with DBaaS on their terms, enabling them to retain control over data governance, security, and compliance policies, ensuring they meet specific organizational requirements.

Security

Data is always encrypted at rest and in transit. Bring your keys, hardware security modules (HSMs), networks and security policies.

Governance

Integrate with the identity provider of your choice for single sign-on. Manage access for your users through custom personas and entity sharing.

Compliance

Host the data in your cloud tenancy with guarded and audited server access. Design custom SLAs that suit your business needs and industry requirements.

Integrations

Bring your software images with custom patches. Integrate with any third-party observability, security, and auditing software of your choice.

Flexibility with control plane and data plane hosting

Tessell allows you to manage the databases seamlessly by bifurcating the management layer (control plane ) and storage/data layer (data plane). Chose from a shared or a dedicated option for the control plane.

Least privilege access

Secure communication between the control plane and the data plane by employing IAM roles with least privilege for secure and temporary access, utilizing resource tagging for fine-grained access control, and limiting microservice interactions to minimize attack surfaces.

Minimize vulnerability with secure network communication

Inbound connections to the data plane are strictly prohibited unless explicitly approved, and outbound connections are protected with SSL encryption. The architecture follows a pull-based data retrieval approach, ensuring the control plane remains passive until needed.
